Sew Thankful Sunday, September 2020

{I love the idea of “paying it forward”. I think the world would be a better place if we could spread some joy and acknowledgement of good deeds done by others. I try to do that once a month for my Sew Thankful Sunday posts. I highlight some great content that I’ve found on other people’s blogs that I hope will inspire you and reward the originator by bringing traffic to their site. If your blog has been mentioned without your consent, please let me know and I will take you off the current list of featured bloggers.}

Sew Thankful Sunday September 2020 is full of fall inspiration, tips and tutorials to enjoy!

September is one of my favorite months of the year. It’s a great time to re-organize, change gears and get ready for the changing seasons. I love decorating for Fall and the colors in nature are always spectacular. Much of this reflected in today’s Sew Thankful Sunday list.

  1. I’m sure you’ve heard the news that Craftsy is back. No more Bluprint, just good ol’ Craftsy. If you have questions or want general information about how things work, check out their FAQ page. I, for one, am glad for this change!

I’m so excited for the Fall season, cooler weather, and busting out the quilts to decorate (and snuggle) with. Thanks for visiting today along with the featured bloggers and designers. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Julie, thanks for always pointing us in the direction of such interesting, useful posts. This week you hit it out of the park with Quilt Fabrications. I never knew that I wasn’t supposed to lengthen borders on the diagonal. I had always assumed that since this was somewhat more difficult it must be the correct way to do it. How often is the easier way to do something also the right way? 🙂 I’m about to add borders to a couple of quilts and now I’m actually excited about it.

  2. Julie, I found the borders tutorial so timely. I’m about to do one today and I have so much trouble with borders even after all these years. Thanks! I also love Fall. It’s my favorite season!
